I live at the intersection of Willow and Studebaker in Long Beach which is a fringe area next to the Eldorado Park that many neighbors have labeled cellular hell. After month long frustrations with my own T-Mobile, which will not work in or around the house, I tried my sons' AT&T and Sprint which while functional displayed sub-average reception and clarity. The Motorola E815 with Verizon service was acquired today and functions flawlessly with excellent send and receive capabilities. The phone itsel has far too many features but fortunately they do not intrude too much in the process of placing and receiving calls.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel coverage of the north side of Signal Hill and also in the Lakewood area have been poor for years. I seem to get much better coverage when I travel. In building is particularly poor. Oddly enough, coverage in my home near by is generally good.Was this review helpful to you?

My service is great all over this country - I work in the travel industry - but I can not get ANY reception at my home. What's wrong with this picture? Sprint keeps telling me that I'm crazy. I completly rely on my cell service for work, yet I can't get phone calls. I do however get some voicemail, but it is usually hours after the message is recorded.Was this review helpful to you?
Had Razr before and lucky if I get one bar or maybe two inside my apartment. My neighbor has the MDA and also complains about signal strength of lack of it.Was this review helpful to you?
My phone carrier is T-Mobile and inside my house, I could never get any service. Most of my calls are being dropped and when I receive and make calls, I mostly hear static. When I look at my phone, most of the time I would only get one or two bars if I am lucky. But most of the time, my phone just says "Emergency Calls Only". I just hope they can do something about this because I Have tried using other phones just to see if I can get a better signal but my phones all turned out the same. And i'm not the only one complaining, my neighbors are also complaining about the service we've been receiving.Was this review helpful to you?
Halfway down the Alamitos Peninsula on Belmont Shore the reception is poor. I usually you have to walk outside to get any reception and half the time I only get a message saying I have voicemail because the phone never received the incoming call. Since I reside on the second story of the building the reception is a little better, however, I still have to walk outside my apartment if I plan to have a conversation longer than a minute before the reception starts breaking up. What's weird with my phone is that sometimes it will show full reception bars, then it will show one bar the next minute, and then when I try to make a phone call it will show no bars. I usually have to wait until the phone shows bars in order to make an outgoing call before the bars go away again. It's like aliens are playing a sick game with my phone whenever I try to make a phone call just tick me off. One thing I would have to mention to anyone with a T-Mobile Razr V3 phone is that a few months ago T-Mobile let anyone with a Razr phone to exchange it for a newer version of the Razr because supposedly the first phones were having problems with reception and what not. I never really had any problems with my first Razr phone regarding reception but the new updated phones they gave out are actually worse. The only reason why I stick with T-Mobile is because they are about the only phone carrier with a one-year plan and they offer 1500 anytime minutes. Since T-Mobile uses Cingular's antennas it's the same as having a Cingular phone but with a much better service plan. Many people fall for the free weekend and night-time minutes no one really talks for more than 1000 minutes in a month let alone 1500.Was this review helpful to you?
my Motorola phone gets good signal outside about 2-3 signal bars but when I go inside its very bad. I got the Samsung t809 but that phone drops several calls and doens't get a lot of signal. I'm thinking about changing my phone company to Cingular because they get better signal in buildings especially stores and schools were T-Mobile fails to get anything.Was this review helpful to you?
Switched to Verizon from AT&T 2 years ago. AT&T had no reception at my house. Verizon is great, at my house and throughout this part of Long Beach.Was this review helpful to you?
